Theorizing the Portuguese Colonial Experience

The workshop “Theorizing the Portuguese Colonial Experience. Images, History, Power” will take place on 16-17 June, at Companhia das Culturas in Castro Marim, Algarve. This closed workshop is designed as an informal brainstorming meeting in dialogue with the work of Professor Ann Laura Stoler, under the following common, general, issues: What are the mutual interferences, tensions, productivities, silences, ignorances, gaps, influences between the empirical and conceptual specificities of studying the Portuguese empire, and the wider international literature on the colonial and post-colonial? How, in short, does the study of the Portuguese colonial experience interfere with old and emerging theories of colonialism and post-colonialism?
